Hey guys! I have been working on this app for a while and am now ready to start officially showing it off and get some feedback!

So what is Nandroid Manager? Well its an app that allows you to view, explore, and edit your nandroid backups!

Current features:
* Support for TWRP and Clockworkmod (v5 & v6) backups.
* Delete and rename backups.
* Verify MD5 of backups.
* Compress backups to zip.
* Extract files from backup files.
* Restore SMS data from nandroid backup.
* Restore Wifi data from nandroid backup.
* Restore Bluetooth data from nandroid backup.
* Restore call logs.
* Restore apps+data from nandroid backup.
* Restore user word dictionary.
* Flash Recovery.
* Explore contents of backup files with support for the following backup file types:
- yaffs2.img
- tar (this includeds any file that has a weird file extention but is in the tar format)
- .dup
** If you dont see your format here please let me know!
I was wondering if a member of the community that is good with graphic art stuff could possibly create a Featured Graphic and Promo Graphic for the market listing? In return I will send that person a pro key.

Feature Graphic
1024 w x 500 h
JPG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha)

Promo Graphic
180 w x 120 h
JPG or 24-bit PNG (no alpha)

Important info about restroing sms data:
There is a settings in the default Messaging app that deletes older messages from conversations which have more than 200 messages. When restoring1000s of messages this setting can cause a lot of problems because it keeps trying to delete messages when you try to open the conversation. If you are restoring lots of messages, then disable this setting by opening the Preferences of the Messaging app.

On some devices it can take a long time to index the new message data. If you get a blank screen or if the phone asks you to “Force Close” or “Wait” when opeing the messaging app just press “Wait” and leave the Messaging app running for a while. It will eventually finish and the app will become usable again.

I have updated the app! Download link in first post.

Whats new:
Alpha 3
* UI changes
* Added ability to restore apps + data from nandroid backup. Right now only apps in Data can be restored. Support for system apps will come soon.

Since this software is still in alpha the restore process for some app data is not perfect. If the app will not open after you restore it try clearing the app cache and if that does not work clear the app data. These issues will be fixed in next version.

* Improve restore.
* Allow user to select either App, App+data, or just data to restore.
* Add caching so user wont have to reparse data in backups
